New minor version.

  • Noteworthy changes in release 1.9 (2018-03-12) [stable]


time now reports percent CPU usage for programs lasting less then 1 second. previously, time would report '??%' if programs lasted less than 1 second. (adopted from Fedora).

Changes in behaviour

"time -p" no longers adds the "Command exited with non-zero status" message. This is a backward-incompatible change for better POSIX compliance. Many downstream distributions previously patched 'time' to behave this way (Debian added '-q', Fedora patched '-p').
